4th and Goal...and Louisiana Tech Punted

10 September 2017, 09:20 | Ken Black

This may be the most bizarre college football play ever

Mississippi State defense takes over to beat Louisiana Tech 57-21

A blocked point-after attempt by Jonathan Barnes made it a 9-0 lead for Tech with 6:46 remaining in the first quarter. That's an 87-yard loss.

Louisiana Tech aren't the same lamb to the slaughter that Fresno State was to Alabama.

Kam McKnight scored on a 1-yard run and tight end Zach Cousar caught a 9-yard touchdown pass for Louisiana Tech. After struggling with Northwestern State through three quarters last week, La.

Speaking of the young secondary, for Louisiana Tech it doesn't get any younger than true freshman cornerback Amik Robertson. They lost 86 yards on the play and then had third and goal (or third and 93!). So consider this matchup a better litmus test of what to expect from Grantham's defense moving forward. Miss State led 50-14.

Unlike the first half, MSU came out ready to play in the second.

The Mississippi State sophomore accounted for two touchdowns and blocked two kicks to spearhead the defense to another dominant showing. "The offensive line, they played their tails off".

Last year, Fitzgerald had the unenviable job of replacing record-setting quarterback Dak Prescott. The Bulldogs ran for 281 yards in the victory, averaging 5.6 yards per carry.

He picked up right where he left off against Charleston Southern, throwing for 239 yards and accounting for three total touchdowns. Tech's secondary rebounded and allowed just 204 passing yards the rest of the game.

Opponent notwithstanding, Mississippi State put on a clinic in its season opener.

On second and goal, Louisiana Tech fumbled the ball and both teams chased it down the field, and while a Louisiana Tech player was able to recover it, he wasn't able to do so until they were 87 yards away from where they started, resulting in a third and 93.
